I quit smoking weed started smoking cigarettes tried to smoke weed again had 1 anxiety attack but i can't smoke no more will the anxiety go away ?

Yes: The effects of smoking marijuana generally last just a few hours- the effects will wane hour by hour and within 6-8 hours you will likely be feeling no effect. However, it may feel like a much longer time if you are anxious. If your anxiety persists beyond this it is not directly caused by the marijuana. Taking magnesium glycinate or citrate & drinking tulsi tea should help calm you. See comment:. ...Read more

Is smoking marijuana alkaline or acid forming. What does smoking marijuana do for a sinus cancer?

Whoa: Everything you read online about "acid-forming" and "alkaline-forming" is pseudoscientific fantasy. Ignore it.

Smoke's a likely risk factor. How about just getting high on life's beauty? ...Read more

Unknown: There is an association between heavy marijuana use and the development of schizophrenia, but in your case there are too many unknowns to say one way or the other as schizophrenia, in general, is not common before the age of young adulthood.

Can i take celexa after smoking weed? I was persc.10mg but only want to take 5mg. I also am taking 1/4 klonopin (clonazepam) 2x a day. After smoking i feel bad!

Depends: Celexa and Klonopin (clonazepam) are not contraindicated. However, you should really consider taking these medications at the prescribed doses. A 5 mg. dose of Celexa is below the standard dose that demonstrate efficacy. As for the marajuana, you are actually undoing all of the positive effects from the medication by smoking. So net neutral. Hope that helps! ...Read more
